Metal Plating

Plating is only good for occasional wear and if worn daily will definitely need to be repeatedly reapplied Within the scope of fine jewelry, there are only two reasons to plate something. The first and most common use is to give a piece of sterling silver jewelry a gold finish. This creates a nice piece of jewelry that has the appearance of gold, lacks the cost and still retains the value of being solid precious metal. The second application is that of using rhodium plating to plate any material for two reasons, first to mitigate any allergies one might have to the 7.5% of base metals in sterling silver and second to combat tarnish and retain a bright white finish.

In both cases, the longevity of the plating will depend on two factors. 1) the thickness of the plating. When talking about plating we are talking microns so there is no such thing as plating that will survive a scratch (another pitfall of gold plated products). 2) General wear habits and frequency of use.

© 2017 The Ashlar Company “Brother Mike,

I was notified of shipment of my ring on Friday, March 6th received it on Monday, March 9th. Great shipping service!

My order was for the Blue Lodge ring, model (359176) in 14k Yellow Gold with a solid back and blue stone. Basically a simple, classic, timeless style. I must say I am extremely satisfied with it. The quality and color is beautiful. The masonic symbol on the stone is detailed and very striking. I dare say it is a delight to look at, and with which to display my Masonic pride.

Order was placed on a Sunday, so counting as you could do nothing until Monday, that made delivery to my door in exactly 5 weeks. Very happy!

Thanks for all your follow through, and creating one very happy customer make that 'repeat customer'!
